F-35 Lightning II
Total program cost: $331.9 billion



The F-35 Lightning II is part of the Joint Strike Fighter Program, which is meant to phase out older generations of jets. It has three variants: the F-35A, the F-35B and the F-35C. These jets have conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) capability, STOVL capability and carrier-based capability, respectively.



The Joint Strike Fighter Program has encountered numerous cost overruns. In June, the Government Accountability Office released a report called "Joint Strike Fighter: DOD Actions Needed to Further Enhance Restructuring and Address Affordability Risks," in which it stated that the program might cost over $1 trillion to operate.
